Francis Scott Key School 3rd graders (from left) Jennifer Manno, Davyna Chhea, and Avianna Kang display a prototype of their Cavity Prevention Detector, a toothbrush that detects and prevents cavities using tiny light sensors on the bristles and relaying information to a computer chip inside the brush. The three 9-year-olds made up one of four teams from their school and 4,800 teams around the nation and Canada who designed innovative technologies as part of the 2012 Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision Science Competition. The girls received regional honors for their device. Organized by the National Science Teachers Association, ExploraVision calls itself the world

These girls have created a very nice model that is innovative. These competitions provide them a platform to display their knowledge. I really appreciate their work > I wish them luck for their future.
